We are a family run creative agency based in an old converted barn in Newdigate, Surrey. Woodblock was founded by Aaron in 2005 out a desire to create truly great design and print. Following an M.A. in Design from Birmingham University in 1995, years of experience in a variety of artisitc disciplines, including silversmithing, jewellery, product and graphic design and working for companies such as Wedgewood, Paperchase and Links of London, he had acquired an enviable set of skills. Along with his unstoppable creativity and fastidious attention to detail Woodblock was born.
Aaron’s wife, Lucinda joined the business bringing less creativity but more organisation! With a degree in Business from Cardiff University and years working for her own family’s business, a small chain of pubs in south west London, where she coordinated the events, weddings and restaurants, she had the importance of customer service instilled from the crib. Alongside ensuring the customers are tickled pink with their experience with Woodblock, marketing and driving the business forward is what you will find her doing most days.
We strive to create an environment that fuels creativity and pleasure (life is too short to be unhappy) and we believe this shines through in the work we create.
It’s incredibly important to us to work collaboratively with our clients, ensuring we understand what they want to achieve in order to create projects that are fresh and fit the brief. Functionality is just as important as aesthetics, but we aim to deliver both. We love working with clients to help them acquire the tools they need to power their businesses, creating opportunities through creative solutions. With a plethora of projects under our belts we can help and guide where necessary.
At Woodblock we offer forward thinking design and fast turnaround digital/litho print complimented perfectly with traditional skills and restored vintage presses. The use of these various mediums and the diverse backgrounds of our team enables us to create interesting ideas and a holistic approach to serving our customers.
No matter how big or small the project, whether it’s a straightforward print job of posters, roll banners or leaflets, an entire refresh of your businesses identity, branding or the production of premium marketing tools such as business cards or notebooks we can be on hand. Producing stand out design and print gives us a kick and we love a challenge, so we’d love to hear from you.
